PDHPE Department News

Welcome to 2019 PDHPE

All students should have received a current PDHPE policy that was handed out via their PDHPE lesson. All students will have been through the policy with their teacher. Please sign the form and return to the school through your daughter’s PDHPE teacher. This will include their permission to attend Evatt Park for practical lessons and you are able to tick a box if you would like the PDHPE coordinator to contact home about sensitive content.

The PDHPE staff are looking forward to a year of helping to improve your daughters understanding of health related matters and introducing them to a range of different sports.

CGSSSA Softball

Our first gala day in the CGSSSA competition took place on Monday 11th February with our Open Softball team competing out at International Peace Park in Seven Hills.

The team were undefeated throughout the day and made it into the grand final to play Marist Sisters Woolwich.

The girls unfortunately were defeated however placed second out of all 8 schools which is an excellent achievement.



Some SCC representative sport gala days do not automatically send individuals and/or teams to the NSWCCC Championships.

To trial for the NSWCCC championships in sports that do not link directly to the pathway, students need to individually register and attending an external trial.

If your daughter is interested in any of the following sports, please see the NSWCCC website below for information regarding trialling for the NSWCCC teams.


If you have any further questions please see Miss Brennan and other PE staff

Students at Bethany College are involved in a wide range of sports representing themselves through the college as well as at external sporting events.

We would encourage all parents with students achieving in the various sporting arenas outside of school, to send through any results so we may be able to share them with the Bethany College community.

Please email lauren.brennan@syd.catholic.edu.au with any details of events and photos of your daughter you would be happy for us to publish to the newsletter.


Caitlin Hollis – Oztag

We would like to congratulate Caitlin Hollis for being selected in the Australian Under 16’s Girls’ Oztag team.  This comes off the back of playing in the Australian Junior Championships in October last year in which the Under 15’s Wolves won the Nationals.  This selection means Caitlin will have the chance to play for her country on the Central Coast in September.

We congratulate her and wish her all the best.






Keira Warn – Swimming

Congratulations to  Kiera who didn’t have much rest during her holiday due to having NSW State swimming titles at Homebush in December and Australian Open Water Swim Champs the weekend just past in Adelaide.
She got some fantastic results :
1st in the 16yr girls 1500m Freestyle at NSW State Age
3rd in the 17yr girls 7.5km Open Water Swim at the National titles. 
Again congratulations on such great achievements.
